Sync iCal alarms with Google Calendar

If you create an event in ical with an alarm, “message with sound” then sync with google. the alarm will be stripped from it. If in gcal you’ve a default alarm set, this will be used instead.

However, if you choose just “message” for your alarm, then it will sync fine.

And then if you’re syncing to your n97 via exchange, it’ll show up there with an alarm.

Syncing back the other way, n97->gcal->ical, ends up with the alarm as a message in ical.
